I started my day off right. I wanted to eat the one last lonely donut that my in-laws left but instead I remembered that I ate three yesterday :( and made myself a smoothie instead. I wasn't kidding when I said I can't keep sweets in the house.
This morning's smoothie was made with 1 cup of Almond Breeze (only 40 calories), 2 tbsp of sugar free chocolate pudding mix, 2 tsp of peanut butter, a little Splenda and 6 ice cubes. It was really good and I am stuffed right now. I hope it holds me over until lunch.
I am trying to think of a way to make my smoothies a little more filling. I was going to add granola to it this morning but didn't want to add that many extra calories. I could always add a 1/2 of a banana (I didn't have any this morning but they are always an inexpensive option). The other thing I was thinking about was some sort of fiber. I think you can buy fiber in a tub and add it to things. I am pretty sure I bought it at a health food store one time. I am going to look into it a little more. It might be a good idea to add a little of this to my smoothies to help me stay full a little longer. Do you have any suggestions?
Last night I went to bed around 9pm (which is really early for me) because I was exhausted from the weekend. I knew that I needed some sleep but unfortunately I woke up this morning feeling just as tired as I did yesterday. I hate nights like this. I was in pain all night and couldn't seem to get comfortable. I felt like a pregnant woman. It wasn't a good feeling. Now I have to go through another day of feeling exhausted. I'm just praying that I don't get a migraine.
Unfortunately when I don't sleep well I don't seem to care about what I eat. I think eating is just a way of keeping my body going when it feels like it can't go any further. I hate days like this. I am going to do my best today to prevent myself from eating bad. Maybe a nap (very, very soon!).
At least I already have lunch planned. Leftover chicken, a small baked sweet potato (with ICBINB, splenda and Cinnamon) and a nice salad with veggies from our garden. I am so excited! I might even skip the potato because the salad sounds so good to me.
What do you like to eat in your salad?
